This paragraph appears on the Guardian web-site as part of a long piece on this summer’s must-watch TV (none of which I want to).
“As sedate as it was, the Open All Hours revival Still Open All Hours was such a hit that the BBC is repeating the idea across the board. Its sitcom season essentially works as a series of pilots for remakes of classic series. They’re remaking Are You Being Served? They’re remaking Porridge. They’re remaking Up Pompeii! and Keeping Up Appearances. They’re throwing everything they’ve got at this and, while there are bound to be a few duffers in the mix, you can bet that your mum will end up loving at least one of them.”
The horror. THE HORROR!
